Our philosophy….

is to achieve our clients’ communications objectives in the most creative and cost-efficient way.

As a small business ourselves, we understand the absolute importance of return on investment no matter how large or small the budget. We will waste neither your time nor your money.

We pay particular importance to understanding the client’s underlying objectives behind any project or campaign. We research carefully the marketplace in which the client operates and ensure that all messages are carefully disseminated to their target audience. We pride ourselves on getting under the skin of the client’s business and working as part of their team.

We have a strong track record in business to business, business to consumer PR and marketing communications, and we work in fields as diverse as healthcare and medicine, psychotherapy and competitor intelligence.
